Fort Mill (S.C.) school district voters have approved a bond package of more than $226 million in funding.
The Fort Mill Times says the money will enable the district to provide the classroom space needed to accommodate a steady influx of students in the coming years. District projections show enrollment climbing from 12,200 this year to about 20,000 by 2020.
The bonds will provide funds to build the district's third high school, its fifth middle school, an aquatics center, and a training facility. Bond proceeds also will pay for land for future schools, new buses, technology upgrades and other growth-related expenses.
